LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Thursday announced the signings of a pair of outfielders selected in last week's MLB Draft. Colin Hering, the club's 10th-round selection out of Coastal Carolina, and Devan Ahart, the 16th-round pick out of Akron, are the newest members of the organization.
Terms were not disclosed.
Still can't believe it. Guess I gotta pull for the #Dodgers now! Let's gooooooo— Colin Hering (@shooting_gaps24) June 7, 2014
Hering, 23, bats and throws left-handed. The Washington native hit just .213/.283/.264 in 55 games as a senior at Coastal Carolina, after hitting .297/.407/.375 as a junior.
He is the third Coastal Carolina player drafted by the Dodgers, joining Chance Gilmore in 2010 and Scott Woodward in 2011.
The slot value of Hering's pick, No. 309 overall, is $137,600, though it's unlikely the outfielder got anywhere near that amount. Hering was signed by Dodgers scout Lon Joyce.
Ahart bats left and throws right. The fourth-year junior hit .311/.395/.404 with 30 walks and 16 strikeouts in 2014, with 27 steals in 56 games. He was third in the Mid-American Conference and 18th in the NCAA in steals.
The 21-year-old Michigan native was signed by Dodgers scout Marty Lamb.
The Dodgers have now signed six of their top 10 picks. Here is a look at the Dodgers draft bonus pool based on what we know now:
